No the quilt isn't wearing sneakers! This weekend I trimed the blocks in navy, sashed them in cream and used the "keg" fabric for the corner stones. The inner border is brown with gold (like a tie print) and the outer border is browny/gold. I am so pleased with the way it turned out!
So is DH........
Tomorrow I hope to get to the quilt shop to buy some batting and on Wednesday I will shop for a sheet to use as the backing. I will look for something in blue to match the trim on the blocks as I will use the same fabric for the binding.
This is my first BIG quilt and I am so happy with how it is coming together!
